Mark Shunock, star of “Rock of Ages” at The Venetian Las Vegas, and creator/producer of Mondays Dark, has announced that tickets are on sale now for the Mondays Dark two-year anniversary celebration taking place on Monday, Dec. 14 (doors 7 p.m., show 8 p.m.) at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
Touted as the “philanthropic event of the year,” Mondays Dark will celebrate all 11-featured charities from 2015 and announce the 11-featured charities for 2016—bringing together 22 local charities under one roof. Shunock will assemble an all-star lineup (to be announced) for the anniversary celebration. Since Mondays Dark began in November of 2013, they have raised nearly $250,000 for local Las Vegas charities.
“We’re keeping the Mondays Dark momentum going, closing out year two by crossing the quarter of a million dollar mark in money raised for so many charities right here in the Las Vegas valley,” said Shunock. “This two-year anniversary show and celebration is going to be a night of nights and is not to be missed. We’re going to blow the roof off of The Joint!”
Once a month from January to November, Shunock gathers an eclectic cast of stars from Hollywood, the Strip, musical acts, athletes and celebrity chefs for 90-minutes of entertainment, song and a lot of laughs at Vinyl inside the Hard Rock. Each month, a different Las Vegas-based nonprofit is selected and 100 percent of all ticket and silent auction proceeds stay with that organization. An average of $10,000 is raised each month.
The 2015 featured charities are: The Center; Blind Center of Nevada; Dress for Success Southern Nevada; Olive Crest; Keep Memory Alive; ORION Cancer Foundation; United Way of Southern Nevada; Three Square Food Bank; Las Vegas Labrador Rescue; Project 150 and Home Aid Southern Nevada.
Mondays Dark is sponsored, in part, by: Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (including Vinyl Las Vegas and The Joint); LEO; Chapman Automotive Group; Greenspun Media Group; Gay.Vegas and Rock of Ages Las Vegas.
